Sept 14, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Sinhala nationalist party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) says that legal action should be taken against the major Tamil party Tamil National Alliance (TNA) for promoting separatism even after the defeat of tiger terrorism.
Participating in a national radio program, the National Organizer and the Media spokesman of the Jathika Hela Urumaya Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe said the Tamil party is attempting to create a dark era once again through the Northern Provincial Council election.
Warnasinghe said the election manifesto released by TNA calling for self-determination in a merged North and East has challenged the laws of the country, the sovereignty and the territorial integrity.
According to the JHU spokesman, Sri Lanka should have adopted a measure similar to what Germany did after the war banning everything including the political movements connected to Nazism and ban every organization associated with the Tamil Tiger terrorist group LTTE.
Participating in the same radio programme, the Dean of the Faculty of Law of the Open University Raja Gunarathne said that the people of the North should be further enlightened about the reality.
He said that after being subjugated to terrorism for several decades they are now used to implement orders being given to them and measures should be taken to make them capable of independent thinking.
"People of the north should be given the opportunity to decide whether they want to make their children inherit the cyanide capsule once again or to march through the peaceful path," Gunarathne said.
